The Garden requires full attention. But this weekend has been all about a friend P-G's 50th birthday, and staying with my cousing Sebbe in Uppsala. I of course got 15 minutes on Saturday at YlloTyll, but again (!) I was successful entering a yarnstore without buying something. Maybe stress and hunger had something do do about it. But - I tell you, the store was packed with goodiees. Amazing. I could spend a DAY there.
Also, a lot of displays of knitted garments, many of their own patterns, very smart. But, this week, started slow, but a Machineknitting meeting at Stickbutiken (where we all caressed the new Garnstudio Silke-Alpacka yarn). Great meeting, which will be a story in STICKA's magazine. But Friday I was in Lund - and I also had 20 minutes in a packed yarnstore (Sländan) who had a lot of interesting yarn. Among some, Twinni, and I stocked up on complementing colours for my Speede (100 g of colours 10S and 11). But I sure hope It was not 11S that I had. Anyhow a great and very busy week. On the long trainride home from Lund, I worked on Julia sleeves. So here is progress on both sleeves knitted at the same time. So, it is slow, and still half a sleeve x 2 left. But, I'm getting there. Finally, I have also been good with my circular sweater. "The otherone" is done, but I frogged the first one, so that needs to be reknitted. Finally, what do you say about my handspun sock? I definitely need more fleece to knit the otherone. Since this will not do! But ít will be so warm and soft. I really like it, and I also think it is a great feeling both spinning and knitting the fleece. OK, now it is apple-pie time (Gravensteiner), and I sure hope SAS will not strike, because I'm planning to go to London to the knitting show (just to meet my NY-friend "When the going gets tough, the tough gets going!!")
